Uruguayan President José Mujica said on Wednesday that he cannot give "a sensible, categorical answer" about what may happen in Venezuela if Hugo Chávez does not recover from cancer. Mujica stated that he rather has "questions" regarding the future of the country in the event that the president steps down.

"I have questions as any other person would, because Chávez has exerted a tremendous influence on low-income Venezuelans and the Armed Forces, and finding a person able to do so is yet to come. Questions arise," the Uruguayan leader said according to radio network Montecarlo.

The president commented that "politics in the Caribbean is determined by true peoples' leaders and Chávez is unquestionably one of them." The problem, in his opinion, will be then finding someone able to follow Chávez's footsteps, Efe cited.
